Cajon Box Lessons for beginners
I'm very excited to start up our classes again! Join our weekly cajon classes where we have fun, learn a lot about music and rhythm and make new friends. We also learn to have more confidence and enjoy expressing ourselves through rhythm and music. Plus its the coolest new thing, to play cajon, so don't get left out! :-) I will be running 2 courses lasting 10 weeks each (beginners and improvers) from 10 July 2018 till 18 Sept (skipping the 21st Aug). Classes will be held at Jacksons Lane Theatre in studio 2 just 1 min from Highgate tube station. You do not need a cajon to join the classes as I have some cajons for hire during lesson time and I also sell some of my own amazing handmade Cruz Cajon for sale at at discount price for any enrolled students so please check them out before buying one elsewhere, you wont get a better deal anywhere else! The beginners course: We will take a step by step look at technique, posture, learning different grooves, ex and how to play with musicians throughout this course. By the end of the 10 weeks you should be able to play cajon comfortably and have learnt a few different grooves and styles on the cajon. We cover a range of styles, focusing on pop, rock, blues, and world music rhythms (flamenco, latin etc) for the beginners course. I would suggest you enrol for the entire course to get the best results from the lessons, but if there is a class or 2 you cant attend, don't worry as we always cover what we learnt the week before in each lesson before moving on to the next topic. There might be one class which we need to shift the lessons as I do at times travel for festivals and shows, but at present the only date we would be shifting class due to my shows in on 21 Aug so the course would be from 10 July till 18 Sept. For those enrolling for the entire course upfront, there is a huge discount, this is to encourage you to commit to the course so you can take full advantage of the course and become a great cajon player in no time! To pay as you go per class it's £16, and if you enroll for the entire course it's £12 per class i.e. 120GBP (£40 discount if you enrol to the whole course upfront) To enrol to the whole course, please contact me on [masked]. Payment for enrolment can be via Paypal or Bank transfer or cash. (you can also book a cajon for hire for the whole course, or choose to buy one of my cajon at a super discount) Alternatively simply pay as you go here per class on meetup. I look forward to meeting you, this is going to be so much fun! For anyone interested in hiring a cajon for class, please request the hire of a cajon at least 3 days prior to the class to ensure I have one available for you for class. Please do so via private message on meetup here. I cannot guarantee a cajon for hire so the sooner your request one, the better! I look forward to seeing you next week!

What we're about

We believe that there is a drummer in everyone and it's our passion and joy to help you discover the beats lying dormant within you! This group is for anyone of any age who loves and enjoys music and rhythms, perfect if you'd like to express yourself through the art of music and rhythm!

Join our weekly classes and learn to play the amazing and instantly rewarding Cajon (Box drum, also known as drum kit in a box). During classes, we learn to play a range of styles (and consequently the cultures that go with it), such as latin, flamenco, pop, rock, funk, folk, world, blues etc.

Make amazing new friends from all walks of life who love music and enjoy having a good time, going out for a drink after class or going out as a group to a concert or event together. We love to go and watch some great live music like flamenco, latin, world, jazz, rock… really anything that inspires us and brings us closer together as a group! Believe it or not, we even have a few in love couples as a result of our cajon events and classes….. :-)

You can also join our ensemble sessions and work as a team on creating an exciting piece of percussive music.

Join our 'flash mob' or street performance events with our Cajon Club, have an awesome day out in the sun with great friends, rhythms and good vibes! It's a great way to feel the rush of performing in public (and busking in general), but in a very familiar and fun setting, in a big group with lots of friends and laughs!

We also host regular Cajon jam sessions, and you are welcome to bring along any instrument, and invite your friends to come along and have a jam, or just pop in for a drink and enjoy the beats!

Take part in our cajon community project events, where we spread the love through the cajon and music to people who really need it! :-)

There is a lot to do, don't miss out on all the fun, join us on our cajon adventures!
